Corse Matin's important role

Just got home after a long day, so nothing very intellectual or demanding tonight I'm afraid.

Just a quick point about Corse Matin, the newspaper I for one enjoy reading when in Corsica. First of all congratulations on the local printing policy - I think the first locally printed (actually in Bastia) edition will be rolling off the presses any time around now.

You were able to get Corse Matin as a PDF file each day on the newspaper's website in the past. Now all you get is job ads and other publicity for the Nice-Matin group. Bearing in mind the newspaper's important role as a sounding board for island opinion and comment, I reckon the web version ought to be reinstated. I love to keep up with what's going on there, and nowaday's it's dificult.

The publishers are offering a chance for foreigners like us to receive the Hebdo (weekend supplement) by post once a week for a small consideration. I have applied for this by filling in a coupon and I posted it to Corsica three weeks ago. So far I've heard nothing. Come on you guys, let's start communicating!

I agree. But nowadays there are RSS feeds, not that Iunderstand them. Also you can watch the news twice daily, albeit with a delay from the transmission time, on FR3 Corse's website (http://www.corse.france3.fr/videojt/) and several radio stations are 'streaming'. Try Radio Calvi Citadelle - you can have it on all day! (http://www.radiocalvi.com/live.htm) and since you mentioned polyphony the other day, there are two Corsican music programs each day. I used to be Vice President!
